The Miami Marlins look for a win after splitting their last six games. The Marlins have scored 11 runs in their last three games and three or less runs in six of their last eight games. The Marlins have lost eight of their last nine games when scoring three or less runs. Dee Gordon leads Miami with 114 hits and 21 RBI while Adeiny Hechavarria and Marcell Ozuna have combined for 57 RBI. The Miami Marlins have split their last six home games. Jose Fernandez takes the hill, and he was 4-2 with a 2.44 ERA and 70 strikeouts last season. This will be Fernandez’s first career game against the Giants.
The Giants are 2-7 in their last 9 during game 3 of a series and 8-22 in Cains last 30 starts. The Marlins are 0-4 in their last 4 during game 3 of a series and 19-7 in Fernandezs last 26 starts. The over is 11-5 in the last 16 meetings.
This is an interesting matchup, as both pitchers are making their season debut. However, we all know that Fernandez is one of the better pitchers in baseball overall, and he's been lights out at home in his young career. I have to side with the fish.
